Snow may be in the forecast, but here at Bright Lights we are thinking about summer! We’re hard at work designing classes and hiring teachers to fill our five weeks of programming with hands-on, minds-on courses. Many favorites are returning, and we are excited to offer some new classes and partnerships to spark summer learning and activity. Here’s a sneak peek at a few classes that will be offered:

Don’t blink – you might miss this hidden gem of a class! And, keep coming back to our website, as we preview additional new classes that will debut this summer. We definitely aren’t hiding our excitement for 2018!

Finish up your holiday shopping AND support Bright Lights on Friday, December 15th at the Barnes and Noble South Pointe location (27th and Pine Lake) in Lincoln. The purchase of books, toys, music and treats from the Café all help support the Bright Lights Summer 2018 scholarship book program. Just mention Bright Lights when you check out!
